Regarding the office décor, "We had lots of comments from parents about this being a quiet, calming environment for their children. We were pleased with that."
The aquarium was custom made to fit the space within the waiting areas. It has a nice quiet power to hold the attention of the clinic's patients (and parents alike).
The waiting room is divided into two specific sides so that the 'sick' kiddos do not mingle with those who are coming in for their 'well' check-ups.
Even if you're on the "sick" side of the waiting room, the surroundings are very relaxing.
When you first enter the clinic, you notice right away the non-typcial décor for a pediatrician's office. Immediately, you realize that things are smooth sailing around here.
A really cute toddler, Henry, barely starting to talk, was observing the fish. His mommy picked him up so he could see them better and asked, "Henry, do you see the big fish?" He pointed, ""Dat one!"
The aquarium is full of Cichlids, which come from Lake Malawi in Eastern Africa. It's one of the largest lakes in the world.
"For a lark, I started wearing bow ties just on Friday about fifteen years ago. Before long, I heard from the patients "where's your bow tie?", so I started wearing them every day."
"It is intensely rewarding to watch the children I see grow up. I have a great job."
